“Humboldt Park is a secret gem in the city. I love running through it, or sitting by the lake. It has several playgrounds so it’s great for kids, a game of frisbee, or a picnic. In the summer it’s lined with Puerto Rican food trucks and you are likely to catch an impromptu jam session.” -Andrea Mills
